Connecting members of the AAPI community and allies to share challenges, listen, encourage and support each other. AAPI Data’s 2022 American Experiences with Discrimination Survey showed that 1 in 6 Asian American adults surveyed said they had experienced a hate crime or hate incident in 2021 or the first three months of 2022. During times of racial injustice, open conversations are some of the most powerful tools to bring people together. That’s why ADN hosted “A Day of Understanding,” in which nearly 750 ERG participants, including Dow leaders, took part in the conversation around anti-Asian sentiment. The conversation covered topics such as bias, microaggressions and ways to become an effective advocate – providing a safe and brave space for people to share their stories, fears and hopes.
